Review: Feedback by Robison Wells

Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs.

Or so he thought.

But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison: a town filled with hauntingly familiar faces. People from Maxfield he saw die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.

They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. As he searches for answers, Benson discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are more sinister than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

I really liked Variant and was quite excited to finally get my hands on a copy of its sequel, Feedback. Perhaps I should have re-read Variant before reading Feedback, but as it was, I was somewhat disappointed. Not much seemed to happen in book two. It also has quite a bit of swearing and violence. The story isn't over yet though, so even with the negatives, I'm still interested in finding out who is behind Maxfield Academy, and how Benson will work everything out.
